When we spotted the Matilda sweater by Julia Wilkens on Ravelry, we instantly knew we had to make a kit for this beautiful garment. Matilda is a kit exclusive shade, a dusty pink which pays homage to the punchy contrast colour in the Matilda Sweater. Using Pip Colourwork, the Matilda sweater is a lightweight Colourwork sweater knitted from top down. Designer Julia Wilkens has said 'The sweater's body has a generous 5"/13cm positive ease, the sleeves have slightly less positive ease for an extra flattering fit. There is a squishy 2x1 ribbing finishing with a rolled-up edge'.
Each kit will come with 15 balls of Pip Colourwork enough to make all sizes, 11 for the main colour and 2 for each contrast colour. The kit is a standard size and there is enough yarn to make all the sizes available in the Matilda pattern. A digital copy of the pattern will be emailed to you once the kit has been dispatched.
Matilda Pink is an exclusive shade in Pip Colourwork for this kit and is not available as in individual balls.
